I was at JC one week ago, and the creek (raging river?) was higher than I've ever seen it before in my life. Since then, none of the creeks and rivers around here have come down any.

One week ago, the average snow line around this part of central Idaho was 6000 to 6500 ft. The lake above JC, Riordan Lake, is at 6540 ft elevation, so it almost certainly has some ice left on it, and right now you would likely have to hike through some snow in the shaded areas to get there.
However, it's getting warmer, and all of the snow is going to go fast.
